I Am the Addams Family

Not kidding.

Usually, I'm a nice, affable, happy-go-lucky kind of gal, just like old Gomez. Would that I was also independently wealthy like him, but hey, we can't all have everything, right? I do have the two kids, the adoring spouse (most of the time) and the unfailing belief that the world is a good and decent place, and the people in it are good and decent people (despite all that pesky evidence to the contrary). I'd even be willing to bet that on some days, my girl has a little bit of Wednesday's 'sisterly love' brewing away in her clever, pretty little head. And my boy? If it looks fun, he'll go along with it, never suspecting...

Then there are the other days, when I fee a little more like Morticia: aloof, slightly mysterious, perfectly safe until you piss me off, then better not come too close. I haven't yet cut the heads off any of my roses, but you don't want to be taking any chances. Now, if only I had a head of hair like that woman! I've always envied those long, black tresses.

Sadly, most mornings especially, far from the elegant, graceful matriarch I'd like to declare myself, I'm pretty much a cross between Lurch and Cousin Itt. All shambling, grumbly-voiced, piss-poor attitude curtained with a mop of waist-length, every-which-way hair. Not. Pretty.

So, my pretties, what fictional character (or multiple characters) are you? DO share!

All of them, Jaime. Right now, though, I'd say I'm their outdoor pet that's inclined to eat people because I'm in that kind of mood today. (g)

Fictional character? Um, how about the Wicked Witch of the West.

Meep! You sound like the carnivorous African Strangler Mortia named Cleopatra, Marci...lol!

Oh dear, Patti...Stay out of the rain!

LOL, I always thought the Addams Family was the "Perfect" family. Gomez and Morticia have the best on-screen marriage I've ever seen.

Oh, man Blogger is pissing me off. I just lost my entire comment--again!

Okay...

As I was saying, the mention of Cousin It and the pic brought back memories. I've had long hair to my waist or longer for most of my life, but growing up my dad nicknamed me Cousin It, lol.

Fictional character? I'd be Alice from Resident Evil. Although I do have patience, I don't put up with bs and I'm not afraid to kick ass if it's needed, especiall when someone dear to me is threatened. I'm blunt and laid back. Besides, I love the boots she wears, lmao!

Haven't slept since 7:00 am yesterday so I'm working my way up to Regan McNeil from the Exorcist before I turn into the Firestarter! LOL

Great post.

Faith said...

OMG, I had to laugh so hard at that, Stephy!

Jennifer Johnson said...

Joan Wilder. Hands down. Anybody remember her?

Jaime Samms said...

I agree, Ann. The nice thing is, most days, hubs and I even vaguely resemble Gomez and Morticia. :)

remind me to stay on your good side, Fairh!

LOL! Stephy!

I'm going to have to look that up, Jennifer.

My sons say I remind them of the wicked witch in Tangles!

Some times I feel like Lucy, especially when everything she tries falls to pieces. I even dye my hair red too.

I even wish I had a best friend like Ethel. Willing to go out on a limb with me at a moments notice.
